Howdy LogoAPPLICATIONS

Congratulations on your decision to make on campus housing your home away from home. Nearly 12,000 students live with us in the heart of the Aggie experience. A number of living learning programs (LLPs) are housed here as well.

We think you’ll enjoy the community environment, the convenience, the amenities and, most of all, the opportunity to meet and learn from a diverse group of friends from all over the world.

To begin the housing application process, choose the title below that best describes the type of housing you intend to apply for and then visit our application overview page.

Residence Halls & White Creek

We are delighted that you are considering living on campus at Texas A&M University. On-campus housing has something to offer everyone. To begin, you must complete a Housing Application which usually open in mid-September. Step-by-Step Instructions.

You’re one step closer to the on-campus Aggie experience. Next, you will need to provide your preferences.

There is no one-size-fits-all on campus. Your individual and personal preferences guide your experience through the application, assignment, and living experience. Below are some ways you provide your preferences that aid Residence Life in finding your perfect place on campus.

1. Apply for Living Learning Programs

We make joining a Living Learning Program easy! Some LLPs are major-specific, college-specific, scholarship-based, or have other criteria for membership. Take a few minutes and explore what these tight-knit communities have to offer.

If you decide to join an LLP, the common LLP application is right after you complete your Housing Application within myHousing Portal. The portal will display a screen called Living Learning Programs and show a list of all available communities. Step-by-Step Instructions.

2. Research Your Housing Options

Both residence halls and university apartments are available to students at Texas A&M University. The next step in the Housing Application within myHousing Portal will be to provide your housing style preferences. Residence Life collects this information in the event you do not choose your own room and we need to manually assign you. We encourage you to take a look at all we have to offer.

Residence Life offers six different types or styles of residence hall living: ramp-style, balcony-style, corridor-style, commons-style, modular-style, and Hullabaloo Hall. These living styles feature many of the same amenities, but each differs in concept. Not only will we ask you for your hall preference, but also your room type.

We also offer an extraordinary apartment community at the heart of the Aggie experience. Our fully-furnished White Creek Apartments community is on west campus near the Agriculture and Life Sciences Buildings and White Creek. When choosing White Creek Apartments, we will ask you to provide your floor plan preferences

Please know that your preference does not guarantee your desired housing style will be available at the time you select or are issued a housing assignment. In the event you do not make a room selection, we will do our best to match your preferences throughout our process.

3. Search For & Select Roommate(s)

Some students may not want to go ‘potluck’. As a service to students, Residence Life offers a robust roommate search and selection feature within myHousing Portal which opens in May. Step-by-Step Instructions.

4. Special Requests & Accommodations

Residence Life encourages students with disabilities to participate in all campus activities and commits to providing supportive services that assist students in fully engaging all aspects of an Aggie education. This includes, of course, meeting specific housing needs of students with disabilities or additional needs whenever possible. Students with disabilities or who have additional needs are assigned roommates in the same manner as all other residence hall and/or applicants unless they are specifically recommended for a single room and one is available at the time their application is processed. Step-by-Step Instructions.

You’re in control! In May, you will receive an email to be prepared on your assigned date and time to select your room.

You can find your selection date and time on myHousing Portal. Selection dates and times are normally shared one week before your room selection period begins. Step-by-Step Instructions.

What does it mean to live on campus? Well, it’s a lot more than having a place to sleep. It’s your home while you’re here. The place where you hang out with friends. Talk to your roommates. Study. Kick back. Relax. Store your stuff. Sleep. Eat. It’s your own space.

On-campus living has a lot of built-in resources and staff to support you during your time at Texas A&M. We are a diverse community with our own standards and rules.

For that reason, we ask all students who join our on-campus community to complete a Move-In Orientation. To do this, after you select a room and we have confirmed your reservation, the Move-In Orientation menu item will appear in myHousing Portal.

You will need to have completed this orientation to receive your key upon check-in. Check your TAMU email over the summer for specific instructions.

White Creek Residents Only – Schedule Move-In Appointment

We work with residents to schedule a move-in appointment. This enables us to make sure everything is ready for your arrival. Choose a day and time for your arrival within myHousing Portal after you complete your Move-In Orientation. Keep in mind that if you arrive before the published move-in dates you may be charged a daily fee for your early arrival.

We are very excited to welcome you to Residence Life at Texas A&M University!

To help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible, move-in information will be posted on our website throughout the summer. Don’t forget to check your TAMU email frequently so you don’t miss important emails – like more detailed instructions for move in based on your building or hall.

Information about early move-in, early-arrival requests, what to bring, what not to bring, and important dates for Residence Halls and White Creek Apartments can be found on our Move-In page. Of course, you can always contact the appropriate office if you have additional questions or concerns before you arrive. We will see you in Aggieland!

Corps of Cadets

We are delighted that you are considering living on campus at Texas A&M University. On-campus housing has something to offer everyone. To begin, you must complete a Housing Application.  See the Step-by-Step Instructions and select Yes to Corps of Cadets when prompted.

You’re one step closer to the on-campus Aggie experience.

All cadets (except for those identified by the Commandant) are required to live in the Corps Halls while an active member of the Corps of Cadets.  Only the Commandant can approve additional exceptions such as outfits V-1 & Delta Company (and only under special circumstances such as married cadets and previous military service cadets.).

Any changes to your assignment will be coordinated between the Corps Area Housing Office and the Corps Operations & Training office. Due to the changing nature of units and outfits, housing assignments are subject to change.

Room assignments are based on:

  1. Gender Integrity – Cadets share a room only with another cadet of the same gender.
  2. Unit, Staff and Class Integrity – A cadet shares a room with a cadet in the same unit and class. Crowded conditions or special circumstances may dictate that cadets of different years and units can room together.
